Better Than Christmas!

I’m so excited! I’m not going to lie – lockdown has been a rollercoaster ride for me. I’ve had up days and down days. Good weeks and bad. The business has had to overcome challenges I could never in a million years have predicted – in fact, Covid has been impacting freight for nearly 8 months now! I’ve had to …

Cowboys & Indians?

As you know, I send out stories, ideas and anecdotes every week. And I get a lot of replies. Sometimes people share their own stores with me in return. A few weeks ago I sent out an email about how gangs have found a new way to capitalize on the current COVID situation – smuggling fake medicines and PPE into …

Who’s Steering The Ship?

Ever watched one of those “car-crash” type videos? You know the ones where you can see something is going to go terribly, terribly wrong… but you can’t do anything to stop it? Earlier this week I came across a video of a container ship crashing into a crane at Busan New Port terminal. It was painful to watch. It all …

Be Like Jack…

I can’t get away from it. It seems wherever I look, my inbox, my newsfeed or even LinkedIn, Coronavirus is all people are talking about. I get it. It’s big news. Probably the biggest we’ll ever see in our lives. But we’re in it for the long haul and I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get a …

Stick to What You’re Good At

Now, I don’t know about you but I have a long, long list of “one day” jobs. One day I’ll paint the fences. One day I’ll pressure wash the pathway. One day I’ll repaint the garage door… you get the gist? So last week I decided to put this quarantine time to good use and get some of these “one …

Are you going to hit the ground running?

I’ve been speaking to a lot of business owners this week. We’ve all taken some serious hits with this Coronavirus sceanrio. Many have lost clients, had new projects put on hold and some have had to shut up shop completely until the lockdown is over. But there’s something interesting that I’ve noticed. Some business owners are feeling pretty beat. They’ve …

Dig In. Dig Deep.

ell, that changed fast. A few short weeks ago Coronavirus was just an inconvenience impacting the freight industry from the other side of the world. Fast forward to today and I’m writing this from my kitchen table at home. I went to pick up a prescription the other day and it was like something out of a zombie movie! The …

6am Wake Up Call?

Things have changed. Over the last decade, the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter have taken over the world. More and more people have started to network online – and I can see why. It’s easy – you don’t even have to leave your desk to do it. It’s time-efficient – no travelling, no big chunks of time taken out …

Like a Kid in a Sweet Shop

I love a good trip to Poundland. If you don’t know, Poundland is kind of a discount surplus store. They sell everything from toothbrushes and deodorant to fancy dress and dog treats, all for £1. But I don’t go for the cosmetics. Every 3 or 4 months I make a quick trip to stock up my sweet supplies for my …

Update: How Coronavirus Will Impact Your Freight

Coronavirus has been an absolute nightmare, not only for the millions of Chinese people who have been locked up in their homes but for the businesses that are on shutdown too. In response to the disease, the Chinese Government closed down factories, ceased shipments and locked down the ports in a bid to help stop the disease spreading. It’s like …
